HARRIS, COVALT, GORDON (Otho E., Susan Jane) Saint Clair Township. From: - Ronald E. Hagen (Feb 11, 1998)
HARRIS, COVALT, GORDON- I am interested in any available information on Otho E. HARRIS and his wife Susan Jane COVALT. Otho E. was born in 1822 in Ohio. On 17 June 1848 he married Susan Jane in Clermont County, Ohio. By the 1850 census he was a farmer in Saint Clair Township, Butler County with his wife. By the 1860 census they were living in Huntington County, Indiana. Otho might have had a brother Henry R. HARRIS (born between 1815 and 1820) who married Sarah GORDON who was born in Butler County on 20 June 1821, thus earlier Butler County associations are possible. Confusion is added by the fact that there were at least three Otho Harrises in Clermont County in the early nineteenth century. I suspect that Otho E. is a link between large Harris families in the two counties.-Ronald E. Hagen
